Picture Perfect

If you are looking for a unique Christmas gift this year then consider local artist Emily Ward. From landscapes & seascapes to pets & people portraits there is something for everyone. 

Professional artist Emily Ward, based in North Shields, has painted murals, commissions and artwork for individuals and many large charities in the North East for years, building a superb collection of unique paintings.

After achieving a BA(Hons) in Art and teaching in the community for over 25 years, she rediscovered painting herself after being diagnosed with breast cancer, and is renowned for her charity work. Her original paintings have been auctioned, raising thousands of pounds for local and national charities.  

Emily works with a range of materials, from watercolours and pastels, to acrylic and charcoal, on both canvas and paper. Her philosophy is to create affordable, beautiful and unique art.

She supplies limited edition prints, cushions, tiles with easels and packs of beautiful greeting cards both to individual customers and to retail.

Emily has built up a collection of local images, including coastline, castles, landscapes and woodlands, all showcased in a choice of beautiful products, from framed printed tiles to large canvasses. She is now welcoming customers to visit her studio in North Shields, giving you the chance to look for yourself at the wonderful art and range of gifts available, all providing unique Christmas gift ideas.

Her studio is warm and welcoming, and Emily would love you to visit to see the range for yourself, so get in touch to arrange a time and she’ll make sure the kettle is on!

Whether you’re looking for a portrait of your family, friends or pets, again a wonderful gift idea, Emily is happy to meet with you and discuss your requirements. She is pleased to offer a unique service whereby she will photograph you or a loved one in the setting of your choice, before turning the image in to an individual piece of art. Alternatively, if you have a favourite photograph, Emily can work off that to create your own unique piece. Commissions start from only £195, and you can receive a 10% discount when mentioning ABC Magazine.
